Join us Monday, March 9th under the Purim full moon for a very special dance-a-thon designed to honor three of the intentions of Purim — honoring the divine feminine, celebrating community and giving tzedakah (charity). -Dance the night away on the heels of International Women’s Day while raising money for the Romemu Hesed Committee and Footsteps — an organization that supports individuals and families who have chosen to leave or are thinking about leaving insular Jewish communities. 

Featuring juicy beats by ecstatic dance DJ Nessoono. Plus an open bar (beer and wine), sultry Shekhinah lounge, temple dancers, healthy bites, body-art by Tash Kouri and more Purim magic! Costumes strongly encouraged. 

Bring your weird, bring your wacky, bring your wild! Together let’s turn this world (starting with our very own Purim dance floor) upside down.
